Media Center

Our Media Center consists of a team of instructional artists, programmers, multimedia specialists (videography), and students. We will work with you, leveraging your subject matter expertise and our storytelling and technical skills, to provide pedagogically sound, visually engaging, educational media which is aligned with learning objectives and facilitates desired learning outcomes.

We are available as part of the full course development process in collaboration with your instructional designer in the Office of Online Education, as well as by request when you prefer to work more independently, but would like help with digital media planning and production.

Interactive Activities

Interactive activities enhance student engagement and learning outcomes. These activities can take many forms such as images with hot spots, formative assessments, video quizzes, timelines, and flash cards.

Cost and Eligibility

There are no charges for our services when the media is used for online and hybrid courses, but our schedule fills up quickly so we recommend planning ahead when making requests. We will help as many of our online course instructors as we can within the limits of our resources.

Accessibility

All Office of Online Education-produced videos are sent for closed captions. You can further improve accessibility by describing the visual content in your graphics and videos and by providing comparable alternative learning content when needed. For more information on accessibility, please visit the UNLV Office of Accessibility Resources webpage.
